Subject: BRUCE!!!!!!!!!
This must be one of the best Bruce Hornsby performances with the Grateful Dead. The whole Boston '91 tour bruce was on fire and into it. This show in my opinion was a standout. I've been a huge Hornsby fan since 1986 well before he played with the DEAD. You can hear it in the tuning before hell in a bucket..then he shined nicely after Vince's solo in TLEO. Minglewood was HOT! with Bruce tearing it up and seemed like he didnt wat to stop. The DEAL was very pleasing to my ears. Bruce exploded after the EYES OF THE WORLD with an unbelievable jam with both Mickey and Billy on drums leaving the crowd to erupt.In ONE MORE SATURDAY NIGHT you can tell the night was almost over and bruce didnt want it to end because his chops were truly amazing the last half of that song. Overall it was an amazing show, and not just with bruce but the whole band was simply amazing for the night

Subject: Bruce and Jerry - They Love Each Other
The spot on, absolutely beautifully perfect Bruce solo and back and forth with Jerry on They Love Each Other makes up for anything bad Bruce Hornsby has done musically or otherwise.

Subject: 1st EVER SHOW!!
Well, this was my first ever show. After a train ride from the 'burbs, didn't enter the Garden arena until Tom Thumb's and barely remember anything before that - I was roaming with my now Australian friend Jax, to find a good spot.
At the time of the show, I was so blown away by the entire atmosphere, the only things that stood out musically at the time were the Bruce Jam before drums and then I was absolutely blown away by an amazing Saturday Night and a sweet, tender Baby Blue. I left the arena literally shaking from the Saturday Night - Baby Blue ending.

Now that I have had the opportunity to listen to this show for the first time in 16 years, I can say that the entire show from start to finish is a gem. A hidden gem. Also the quality is fantastic, I wish it were downloadable.

Subject: 100th show
I guess everybody who reached the century mark remembers their 100th. This was mine, but I can hardly remember the show at all. Looks like it was a good show though!! Seeing as I can't remember it, it probably rocked.

Revision-
Overall, a rather tepid performance. Like other 1991 shows, too much Bruce on the squeezebox and Vinny high in the mix. Makes for a more muddled sound. They got this straightened out by 92/93 and had a more streamlined sound.

Subject: worth it for the 2nd set
The 1st set is nothing too special. But the 2nd set has some really nice touches. A very sharp transition from UJB to Saint leads things off. Eyes has some good jams, and a nice outro to drums w/ a Hornsby solo. The real highlight is a very long extended jam coming out of space into Other One. The drummers come back early, and there's a long blow-out jam with lots of MIDI stuff from Jerry. Then Phil blows the speakers out with his bass riff into Other One, at which point you can really appreciate the very crisp (and deep) bass in this SBD. Wharf Rat is well done, Jerry hits the lyrics well and has some good jams.

Sound - 4.25 stars
Borderline excellent! I like very clean, full, fat SBD recordings - with ambient crowd noise as a bonus. The 9.22 show is better sound, but this is pretty darn good.
Performance - 4 stars
When Hornsby is on the ivories instead of the damnable squeezebox - he brings a special kind of sparkle to the music - kinda like Jerry's guitar does. It's like taking your Dead with champagne, and for that I add .50 stars.
Hornsby's on keys every song except Bucket and Uncle John's - and it's a shame he's not on for those two too, woulda been alot more mint than the cheezebox, which kinda ruins UJB for me.
Song selection 4 stars
2nd set is pretty compelling. First set is for the most part kinda ho-hum due to cheezy keys dulling the edge of Bucket, and Hornsby not getting much to work with until Cassidy.

check out hornsby dropping "so what' into space.

Good show and the Hornsby jam after eyes gets things going

REVISE: DMILKS, by hornsby's admission, he's a "hack" on the squeeze box. I don't mind it, but can see how others may be annoyed.

REVISE AGAIN: DMILKS, see your point completely. I sent a show to a friend where Hornsby was playing the squeezbox on FOTD and he joked that he thought it was Electric Light Orchesra.

Subject: That friggin' accordion
I am sorry but listen to Tom Thumb and tell me that Bruce doesn't just slaughter that beautiful tune with that god-awful squeezebox. Hints of shenandoah and bach's "jesu, joy" by Jer and Bruce before UJB. Very sweet melodies!

REVISE: Lobster12, I know that the Dead were really the ones that pushed Bruce to play the accordion, and I don't really mind it, but sometimes it is a little more pronounced than others. I did happily bear the accordion in trade for the wondeful piano that he played 95% of the time. That was worth every note of squeezebox, no doubt.

Subject: Less energy than 9-20
A less energenic performance than the night before. A decent show none the less. Contrary to the lineage statement, it does sound as if a cassette is in the lineage. This is still a worthy download though. Clean.

Highlights of this show are Eyes and Wharf Rat.

I wasn't at these shows, but this run was quite kind. Not as kind as the Halloween run that proceeds this run. I witnessed those shows, and they were a life changing experience. Bill's death, unfortunate as it was, really brought out what the Dead were all about. His death marked the beginning of the end for the Dead...

One of the better "off the board" mixes I've heard from this era...
Bruce is really heard well in this show, TLEO shines ! I would d/l for this alone.
